KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Rotterdam

  • Rotterdam, known for its modern architecture and vibrant atmosphere, is a great destination for travelers seeking to explore the Netherlands. Car rentals in Rotterdam offer convenience, flexibility, and comfort compared to public means of transport. Choosing car rentals in Rotterdam allows you to easily navigate the city's roads as you embark on memorable journeys to popular attraction sites like Erasmus Bridge and Rotterdam Zoo. With Rotterdam car rentals, you can easily access places limited to public transport due to fixed routes and schedules. Car rentals in Rotterdam also give you privacy as you can travel alone with your loved ones.
  • Passengers arriving in Rotterdam will most likely use Rotterdam Hague Airport (RTM), the city's main gateway. RTM houses a range of well-known car rental agencies, including Avis, Europcar, Budget, Hertz, and SIXT. Car rental companies provide arriving customers with access to various vehicle options. The car rental company's desks are located in the arrival halls of the terminal. You can follow the signs to the car rental center or ask the airport staff for directions.
  • Several major highways make it seamless to navigate around Rotterdam or in and out of the city. Some major highways include A20, which connects Rotterdam to other cities like Utrecht and Amsterdam; A16 is popular for passengers coming into Rotterdam from the south of the Netherlands. A4 and A15 connect with the German border. If you plan on visiting Markthal, you can use Blaak Road, which leads directly to the destination. You can access Blaak by following A20 or A16 and then taking the exit towards Rotterdam Centrum. To access the Erasmusbrug (Erasmus Bridge), you can use the Maas Boulevard road, which leads directly to the bridge.
  • Like many cities, Rotterdam also experiences traffic snarl-ups during rush hour and peak travel seasons. The morning rush in Rotterdam usually starts around 7:30 am to 9 am as commuters head to work or school. Major roads leading to the city, like the A20 and A16 highways, are notorious for traffic congestion during these periods. The evening rush typically starts from 4:30 pm until 6 pm. Understanding the traffic pattern and areas affected can help minimize potential delays.

Pros:

Staff friendly and professional. Paperwork was done at a decent pace.

Cons:

Distance from port. My fault for choosing an Aygo but definately need a more powerful engine. The sluggish engines increase chances of accidents. Also, prices could be better as only hired car for 5 hours.

Cons:

I reserved a car in the evening for the next morning, only to be called that morning and told there were no cars available. I had to look for a different company on my own to get a car, which set schedule back a day. While the reservation was last minute, they shouldn't allow people to reserve cars when they have none.

I had a reservation with Budget that they refused to honor, when I arrived. I had made the reservation months earlier online. When I arrived, they actually gave me the car no problem, then it had something wrong with it, so they went to exchange it for another one. Somewhere in that process they decided that they couldn't give me a car at all for my original reservation, and refused to honor their commitment. I WAS SHOCKED. So I was standing there, stranded, with my 72-year old mother, two dogs and 5 suitcases in a country where neither of us spoke the language, and she hadn't left the US in probably 20 years. It was awful, unethical, and honestly, appalling, that they would do that. Then, they wouldn't even cancel my reservation and give me my money back! So I still need to call and ask for a refund. But it took us nearly a week to reach our destination, having to go way out of our way on trains, and rental cars... it was a nightmare. We had spent nearly $30k on this trip around the reservation we had made with Budget. I don't even want to know how much more it costs us to fix what they did in Rotterdam. Unbelievable.
